Free Tibet: Business shouldn’t trump human rights

Stephanie Brigden, Free Tibet director, calls on David Cameron to address human rights issues and not to be gagged by promises of investment:

"The prime minister must not allow these high profile releases to cloud the bigger picture. Hundreds of political prisoners remain in detention and at risk of torture in Tibet and China, and the human rights situation overall is at its worst since 1989.

"Mr Cameron must speak up clearly and publicly for ordinary Tibetans and Chinese who suffer gross violations of their human rights under Chinese Communist Party rule; he must not be gagged by the lure of Chinese investment."
